    "Hired before you" speak for yourself.

    Every pilot after 12/24/14 should be aggressively seeking employment outside of the flow through. Those in the L1011 should be pressing for interviews at other carriers if they want to be there, but with the movement at AA, it may make sense to flow at this point.

    Any new hire at envoy should consider the flow nothing more than an insurance policy for their career, redeemable after the hiring wave has subsided, and should have their apps filled out as soon as possible and updated regularly.

    The question or more accurately concern is really just how good of an “insurance policy” AA is? Considering AA’s solvency in a declining economy, the next economic downturn can void any such expectation leaving policy holders empty handed.

    I could see a slow down in hiring, or temporary hiatus in ab economic slow down, but not another lost decade. The number of retirements all but guarantees movement at AA (and all of the majors) over the next 15 years.

    Not saying you’re wrong, but a significant economic downturn could make certain things VERY attractive to AAG. In certain scenarios, even unavoidable. A “strategic” bankruptcy filing......actually ANOTHER filing could lead to some form of fragmentation of AA or the destruction of scope (resulting in essentially the same destination).

    I think it a grave error to assume AA is a safe poker bet considering how badly its dealer has mismanaged his table over the last several years. IMO, if the economy wasn’t as strong as it is now, say 50% of present, AA would have likely already filed by now.
